awesome! idk why Toyota puts such shitty lubricant on a transmission they know has issues smh
gotta do what you can to make it easier on that poor tranny
When I replaced my transmission since it went out at 60k miles, typical, I didn't have time to order redline so I went to the dealership and got factory trans fluid for it. And that stuff is some no name brand stuff I've never heard of before. I can't even remember the name of it. The sad thing is my last transmission had redline in it and it still took a dump at 60k miles. I agree with what gadget says, there is honestly no recommended oil change interval for the factory trans because they don't expect them to last long enough to need an oil change lol. Just keep replacing transmissions. Redline is good stuff though.
The Aisin RA60 that are in our trucks are only rated to 345 ft lbs of torque. Its also used the the lexus IS250 6 spd and the V6 camero and a few others. Alot of use modded S/C guys are above that. I've taken them apart before. The main down falls are all single syncroed gears, aluminum 1 piece front case (Causing throwout bearing walk/noise), The shift fork have plastic pads that can wear/break and cause incorrect gear mesh and popping out of gear. IMO if you do single gear pulls and am otherwise easy on it they hold up. If your dumping the clutch and driving it like a race car its gonna pop like a firecracker on the 4th of july.
